in the neighborhoods to hear from our elected officials about the priorities that the city believes are best, but most importantly it's an opportunity for neighbors and advocates to tell our elected officials about your priorities and by way of an example during the last two years, while the city was facing some pretty hard decision for cuts due to state and federal funding that was withdrawn, we heard from senior and disability advocates who wanted the city to continue funding services and community based adult services and unlock was particularly effective to bringing speakers to the events and we also heard from the aids activist, the panel, the aids foundation and others. and both the mayor and the board of supervisors responded to this advocacy and found ways to maintain the funding levels for the loss of the federal funds. we can't emphasize enough for how much your voice counts and encourage you to speak during public comment. our office always provides support for the mayor's budgeted town hall meetings to make sure that there is accessible access and we provide captioning services and assisti

at the demographics of the country and the way they are changing -- in the 1980 president election, 90% of the people who voted for the president is white. it has fallen by 1% or 2% every year. how much of that of the electoral is driving the republicans particularly in the senate toward this and will it pass in the house? >> it is driving it totally. the only thing keeping them in the compromise is the fact this is a punitive thing. this is a 15-year plan at the longest. if you look at 1986 -- >> when bush tried this, they killed it. what is different? >> in 1986 with reform, it was 19 months of workiv a years to pathway to citizenship. this is 15. this is punitive. the main point they want to make is this is not amnesty. as long as they say this is not amnesty and there are secure borders in the package, this has a chance to fly. if someone wants political cover and someone wants to use boston and what about immigrants, then this can. we mentioned the proposal. this is the new generation immigration plan. this is not my father's immigration plan. this is really all about the economic certainty of b
no alarm bells. that is one deflation is much more harmful? and before the december general election, we thought the most important thing was to get deflation in mind of the japanese, at the outset, we thought that the economic landscape should be redone automatically so that people are willing to take risks. at that time the idea -- got to us, we made it something else and pushed it hard during the campaign. as a result of landslide victory. and holdings that were a long time coming. we had done. nothing there other than just voicing our policy package. interesting, isn't it? the market started to respond. it speaks volumes about how important it is to change people's perception and mindsets. it is true that japan is a country that has gone through mutation. no other nations have deflationary after a second world war. throughout postwar history, if you see three more examples that japan is among the few countries that have succeeded the the-published general theory in 1936. prior to that there was someone in japan, keynesian policies in the 1970s. and the finance ministers, one time pri

they were having to find a nominee for the presidential election but they didn't want anybody from the south, obviously because of the slavery situation. franklin pierce appeared to them to be the best bet as a nominee at that time. and merely because of his reputation as a marvelous racketeer but he had remained popular with the south and it was thought there was a good chance that he would be able to win that nomination. there was a great deal of politicking, i have to say, around about that time. but eventually he was nominated at the 48 ballot. >> despite the 48 ballots to get him the nomination, he won the white house in an overwhelming landslide. >> he did, yes. >> so the pierces came in popular. but tell us about this woman we would describe as a reluctant first lady. >> yeah, she was very reluctant. >> what were her greatest influences? >> i don't -- well, if she had any influences, they were negative, i have to say. she came into the white house, she was a 47-year-old lady who it is well known hated politics. she was obviously deeply depressed at the death of her last surviving son.

was elected the first african american mayor i was right up there front and center in 1996 and channel five was out there reporting and they included me in the news coverage and interviewed me and i was historical and crying and emotional and the camera lingered on my black power fist. and fast forward for when i was in washington, d.c. when i was there for barack obama first inauguration and there i went with my fist again more tears flowing and i was not the only one thinking about the shoulders on which the president stood, including those of mayor brown who without question paved the way for president obama and countness others. so today we celebrate all that he is and all that he has done and all that he continues to do. the san francisco mayor's office of neighborhood services truly appreciates the generous support it has received during this 2013 black history month and so right now, i would like to take a moment and acknowledge our sponsors for today's event, san francisco firefighter local 798. the san francisco police association. wells fargo bank. comcast. gen renaissance founda

because they have fulfilled what the president had as a key of election promise. it has been a divisive debate and fierce confrontations in parliament and out on the street. there is a good many people that are relieved that the debate is over. been protests against the president as well as against same-sex marriage? >> this is the question we are left pondering, how much of this is because of the catholic george parks -- the catholic church? one protested march brought something like 1 million people on the street. was it because of the church or was it something more? they lost the election a year ago. 2/3 you look at the polls, of the people in this country lost faith in his leadership, certainly a lot of dissatisfaction there. there was part of that in the protests we have seen. no doubt that there are a good many people that don't believe in the bill and think it attacked what they believe is a family and then, the idea of a child being raised by a mother and father. canada, two men have appeared in court accused of plotting a terrorist attack. directions from iran, but they say th
to actually find out if you are in the minority. mrs. mccracken, does your organization support the election of money bail? or are you focused on other reforms? >> we are focused on other reforms. we advocate for the expansion or the implementation of pretrial services. there is great demand for that across the state of california. the criminal justice institute has been just recently awarded only two counties. technical assistance services in implementing pretrial services. but the demand was from 20 counties to have those services. so there is a great interest from california counties to look at this deliberate intervention to reapproach the criminal justice system. and san francisco and santa cruc county are examples. and they are both counties that had over-crowded jails. and the administrators made a deliberate attempt such as pre-trial services to change their system. and i think it has allowed san francisco and santa cruz to be ahead of the game. when realignment hits, you are better prepared to manage this increased responsibility. i think there are two case studies that we can look
republicans. remember, 90% of u.s. house members never have a competitive election in the general election. whether they're democrats or republicans, what they're really worried about is an attack from the left if you're a democrat, or an attack from the right if you're a republican. most of these republicans don't really care what most americans think. they care what most conservative americans think. that poll and others have shown that americans need to be careful to speak to their base. they'll never really face them in an election. >> michael: that may be a changing maxim as we've seen in congressional elections and polling of all these issues. >> maybe. >> michael: that's what we have to be hopeful for. let's talk about the worker visas. many of them in the san francisco area, the greater san francisco area. >> silicon valley. >> michael: yes, they're pushing for highly skilled workers. how important is that, and will that be tied to not seeing--our unemployment rate? is that something we should do when our unemployment rate is lower? >> that's two questions. how important is this vi

in 100 years when he was elected 10 years ago and he has remained an effective and visionary leader for everyone. mayor newsom gained worldwide recognition when he granted marriage licenses to same sex couples in 2004. we all remember those moving pictures of smiling couples on the steps of city hall, some of them their children watching on. his actions in 2004 thrust this civil rights issue into the national spotlight and cemented his reputation as a fearless public officials who does what he thinks is right. under mayor newsom's energetic leadership the economy grew and the city became an economic center for biotech and clean tech. gach newsom has been a trail blaitzer on combating homelessness and protecting the government. in 2007 he was re-elected as mayor with more than 70 percent of the vote, which is unheard of. please welcome our lieutenant governor, gavin newsom. >> my role was to get tom to speak. i'm just going to jump in because i want to keep you all on time. you've got an agenda packet and i'm going to be held accountable if you don't meet it. roslyn, let's pic

safety. we encourage you to keep the lawsuit going. and you have an elected humanistic progressive value. we would like to see that continue in the city of san francisco. let me add a little additional information about this issue to the not knowing. we just went through proposition 37 in the state of california. the corporations put up nearly $50 million to defeat the right to know what goes in your mouth. people have a right to know what goes in their ear and the consequences of this. if you fail to keep this going, this lawsuit, you would be denying your humanistic and your progressive values. the people of san francisco would appreciate your awareness, to stop corporate [speaker not understood], corporations have their influence on our evolution. you need to take into consideration your children's children's children for future generations. ~ the impact of this is so critical that the corporations are going to spend a great deal of money to defeat this. they don't want us to know, and why shouldn't we know what is going into our ear, what is going into our human body? i emphasize to
the roof tops for ten years is -- is -- has been changed obviously because of the last election, but you still see it. i mean now the big new excuse is oh, my gosh, we just had a terrorist attack and these people came over from a foreign country. the fact that they were 15 and 8 when they came over, not exactly terrorists, is -- is totally ludicrous, but they are seizing on anything, i think, michael to slow this down and potentially stop it. >> michael: i get the feeling they couldn't care less what happened in 2012. they got 28% of the hispanic vote, and yet they still stand in the way of this, and continue to block it. tell us what are some of the tactics that they can use in congress to block this. >> one of the things they would like to do obviously is to extend the hearings, have more investigations. you can spend ten years studying chechnya, michael, i mean come on. but you have folks like the speaker who says listen this should not be delayed because of boston. you have john mccain saying to delay an immigration bill is ludicrous. so there are enough republica
different needs than people in the mission district or bayview hunters point. so often, elected officials and other hard working staff have to make tough decisions. they are political in nature, in many ways, even though people denied that, but at times, many of us are politicians, but we always try to govern with our hearts. >> i have always considered myself having progressive politics. i believe in a vision of people having their needs met. i believe in equity. when people have special needs, we should be considered of that. i also feel that working families in the lowest income population should have a safety net. we should have civil-rights and equality rights for people as well. if that is being a progressive, then i am proud of being a progressive. >> i want to learn more about it. >> social networking and e-mail. >> i want to know how to use it. ♪ ♪ ♪ >> divisional divide is a divide between those with access to use digital tools and those who don't. >> with young people, having computers and i just don't know. they're doing it fast. so, i want to know. >> not knowing how to

to petition their elected leaders. not just to honor the memory of their children, but to protect the lives of all of our children. a few minutes ago, a minority in the united states senate decided it wasn't worth it. they blocked common sense gun reforms, even while these families looked on from the senate gallery. by now it's well known that 90% of the american people support universal background checks that make it harder for a dangerous person to buy a gun. we're talking about convicted felons, people convicted of domestic violence, people with a severe mental illness. 90% of americans support that idea. most americans think that's already the law. and a few minutes ago, 90% of democrats in the senate voted for that idea. but it's not going to happen. because 90% of republicans in the senate just voted against that idea. a majority of senators voted yes to protecting more of our citizens with smarter background checks. but by this continuing distortion of senate rules, a minority was able to block it from moving forward. i'm going to speak plainly and honestly about what's happened here
is entirely inaccurate. the media helped in this racializing in boston. they got help from the elected officials. here's republican congressman louis goe mert of texas on wednesday. >> we know al qaeda has camps with the drug cartels on the other side of the mexican border, people are being trained to come in and act hispanic when they're radical islamists. >> chuck grassley from iowa had this to say on immigration reform on friday. >> given the events of this week, it's important for us to understand the gaps and loopholes in our immigration system. while we don't yet know the immigration status of people who terrorized the communities in massachusetts when we find out it will help shed light on the weaknesses of our system. >> actually, senator, maybe the weakness is in trying to tie terrorism to immigration. at the table, msnbc contributor and georgetown university professor, michael dyson and ari melber. >> former south carolina gop chair katon dawson and za here ali. gang of 8 in the midst of all this, gang of 8 puts out the immigration report. marco rubio does a kind of here's th

on testimony or questions, rather of max baucus, a democrat we should point out up for re-election. what is his concern, john? >> whenever he goes book to montana we hear from small businesses we don't know what is going on, we don't know what the rules are, we don't know what the costs are. one woman says i have four small business, each are below the 50 threshold to cover my employees. do i have to add up and do i have to cover or don't i? there are no rules or regulations. in this mess very few companies are highering new people because the uncertainty is so great. bill: he said small businesses have no idea what to do. they have no idea what to expect. he goes on to say you need data. do you have any data? you have only given me concepts, frankly and not data. do they not have that? are they still trying to figure it out too? >> jay rockefeller, democratic senator from west begin and one. architects of obamacare, told secretary sebelius a few weeks ago this is the most complicated piece of legislation congress ever passed and so far it is not working. bill: he said if it is not done right t
, it is part of you. there is no way it ever goes away. i got elected to the senate when i was 29 years old. i was often mistaken for a senate staffer. [laughter] literally. i was told numerous times this elevator was reserved for senators. oh, for those days. they immediately [laughter] -- [laughter] they immediately knew i was a senator when i opened my mouth. nothing sensible came out. they knew i had to be a senator. [laughter] that goes for congressmen, too. what.rs, guess a different, category. i do not know. [laughter] twice aser here is long as it is on the way back. all of us who serve here have been elected here. it is so trite to say it. you know there is no possibility we can do our jobs -our- >> a live look at the u.s. capitol, where, just a short while ago, mitch mcconnell has agreed to vote on the gun- control bill. nine amendments begin tomorrow. our live coverage on c-span2. a letter containing ricin or another poison was sent to the senator of mississippi. the lettersay when was sent. it did test positive for ricin. news reports indicate the facility will be closed for the ne
't know. i don't know, the election's not for six months. cenk: you're trying to bring i don't know back, i'm trying to bring portly back. >> it's ok not to know. right now we don't know and it appears that we have professionals and it and they're the only people who can solve it. cenk: who's going to know better us or the guys from quantico who are gathering the shrapnel? they're going to figure it out i believe. the people not in panic right now, the muslims. they are literally saying please don't let it be us. we'll talk about that when we return. real immigration reform? >> with a distinctly satirical point of view. if you believe in state's rights but still believe in the drug war you must be high. >> only on current tv. cenk: we're back on "the young turks." ben, mark, and michael are all here. jami dewolf has joined us, a writer and filmmaker. great to have you with us. >> thank you. cenk: we were talking about how muslims are worried oh, my god what if it's one of us, we're going to have more trouble on our hands. in regards to the bomber, then about anti muslim back slash: cenk:
pinocchio's for lying. tonight we are giving dunce caps away, and we will continue to do this. elected officials to make egregiously silly statements. we think our elected officials should be so honored and noted. so we are going to award this to acquire tonight. and he earned it. i think you would agree. fellow democrat, a year from california, the head of the house democratic caucus today warned that the sequester cuts undermine the ability of our cities to respond to terrorist attacks. listen to this. >> so, when those first responders did such a phenomenal job yesterday in boston, chances are the mayor in boston is now having to figure out how to cover for the extra cost involved in having so many people out there for security and emergency medical assistance responding because they get paid so he is now probably getting money from some other part of his budget, the community police tell whether it's a vaccine for kids provided to a city. they have to pay for it. lou: pure balderdash. these are the facts, congressman. boston has actually increased its police force of the last coupl
.s. flag. the funding would be granted to the puerto rico elections commission to conduct objective voter education and a vote on options that would resolve puerto rico's future political status. key congressional leaders in the house and the senate, republican and democrat alike, have already issued statements of support for the president's action, calling it an appropriate response to the local referendum. . my constituents may not have a vote in a government that makes national laws, but they do have a voice and they make that voice heard loud and clear in november. a budget reflects one's priorities and values. i support the president's budget because it shows respect for the democratically express the aspirations of the u.s. citizens that reside in puerto rico and it demonstrates a clear desire to move forward on this complex but critical issue. as the budget request states, the federally sponsored vote is to be one that would result for puerto rico's political status. the only way to resolve the status is through statehood or national sovereignty. puerto rico cannot resolve its stat
, and to vote this issue and will vote this issue in the next midterm election, you know, it's not surprising that this--the people get scared. they don't have--unless there is a cavalry coming to their rescue in the 2014 election and there doesn't seem like there is at this point that would be sufficient to defend them against nra attack ads it's not surprising that we saw the result that we did. >> john: or, tim they're the kind of people who enjoy being lied to. will this issue still be relevant in 2014? or will it be pushed to the back burn you are by then in america's collective mental hard drive? >> the point is that the nra wins because the americans are distracted. we looked at boston today and we'll be thinking about when it comes to pulling the lever in the polling booth, did the representative help the economy? but there is the other side of the debate who vote only on gun rights, and that will be driving their votes and that's what people are responsive to. that's why single issue politics can triumph like it did today. >> john: you're right until someone they love is shot in the
and the newtown families are going to have to mobilize for the long haul, for the 2014 election, they are going to have to get in the ball game the way the nra is. this is the way politics is played today, like it or not. that's what they are going to have to do. it's going to get the president in the midterm election and based on the righteous indignation he showed today. >> the high-water mark for anger about guns and multiround clips and semiautomatics exploited by this crazy person up in newtown should have been the great opportunity to stop the gun crowd and it didn't work. >> i think you're right. and harry reid, even though he volt voted for the assault weapons ban today, he signaled at the very start that it would not fly. >> here's a statement from the nra following the vote on toomey/manchin. it reads in part "this amendment would have criminalized concern private transfers of firearms between honest citizens, requiring lifelong friends, neighbors and some family members to get permission or exercise a fundamental right or face prosecution, as we have noted previously expanding backgr
election, the midterm election. what he said is, we're going to be back at this, and yout this e you can rally around. this is an issue you will have a chance to vote on. and when you look at all the republicans running for reelection in the senate, wolf, there is only one of them, and that's susan collins of maine, who actually voted to support this expanded background check measure. so, you know, the president did lose four of his democrats, but it's very, very much republicans running for reelection in 2014. and you can be sure this is an issue the president will campaign on in those states. >> let's bring in our chief white house correspondent, jessica yellin. the president said this is round one, a setback but not giving up. realistically what can he do now? >> wolf, while we're here talking about this, the president is out having dinner with democrat senators. he can focus on what gloria just mentioned, the 2014 election. now, i am -- i'm confident that when he said this is round one, he was not talking necessarily about 2014 alone. but democrats will now make this an issue in 2014
